Our research seeks to understand how anthropogenic activity alters the transport and transformation of water, nutrients, and contaminants across multiple scales. Our work focuses on urban and agricultural areas, and seeks to understand the cumulative effects of changes to land use, land management, and climate on water quantity and quality. Our work integrates simulation modelling, statistical analysis, data mining, programming, and GIS. We participate in field data collection and lab analysis through close partnerships with academics and government scientists doing empirical and lab based work. Our work, though fundamental, is undertaken in partnership with non-academic stakeholders, including provincial government agencies, conservation authorities, and private corporations.
